never give up
Staying quit is the hardest part for me.
I had to reset my quit date.
17/6/19 12pm, 20 hours and 54 minutes.
Im trying not to beat myself up over my setback, and i called the quitline and have 'enrolled' myself in there program (i don't understand the quitline system) so hopefully with more support, i can stay quit this time.
Never give up on giving up.
I sit here wondering why I didn't try to quit smoking earlier. Wait-a-minute!! I did try in the past. At least 10 times. But this is the first time I planned it properly. It wasn't cold turkey. I used to smoke 20-30 Cigarettes per day. I first reduced it to half (10-15), then 10, then 7,---and after about a month, I reduced it to 0. The day was 31st Jan. I haven't smoked since.
It could have b...

I smoked my last cigarette on Jan 31st, 2019. I thought it would be impossible to quit smoking, but guess what!! I am succeeding. And it's not as difficult as I had thought it would be.
I do get cravings, but I am able to fend them off easily. In fact I am enjoying these moments of cravings. They are reminders of how cigarettes play with our minds. I don't want these ugly sticks to play with m...
It is 101 days already since my last cigarette. Where does the time go?
I have seen many succeed on this journey to freedom and restored health. Congrats to those who made it, and Kudos to those who are still trying or back after making multiple attempts. Your efforts will be rewarded. Every time you miss that brass ring, you have learned, and knowing where you went off course enables you to...
It is true everyone is different, below is my journey to date on quitting smoking.
At a guess I would eatimate I quit smoking about 6 weeks ago, cold turkey, had a bed time ciggie and said to myself “ thats it, this is the last one” and to date it was. To put my habbit into perspective, by age 13 I was smoking 100 ciggies a day (some say impossible), a life of boarding schools, you learn some ...
Me and my husband have been trying to quit for the past year and now that I am pregnant, yesterday was day 1 of our quit journey. Over the last 12 months I have cut back from 40 cigarettes to ten cigarettes per day. On my first day I actually started crying because I wanted a cigarette so bad but my husband managed to calm me down. So today is my second day and I am feeling pretty confident. I re...
Well, two years ago today, I snuffed out my last smoke.. It is still Feb, 15th here. You folks, down under, will be reading this on my tomorrow, but I'm writing it on your yesterday :)
The best tip, I can give to new comers, is to realize, this does not have to be a journey. You do not have to stay quit. It does not have to be a life long battle. You simply have to real...
